What causes rashes?
Rashes, or visible changes in texture or color on a portion of your skin, can be caused by a number of factors. A few of the most common include:
- Contact dermatitis (when the skin comes in contact with a substance, such as clothing dyes, plants, or soaps, that triggers an adverse reaction)
- An allergic reaction or side effect to medication
- Insect bites
- Certain medical conditions, including eczema and ringworm
